    Thanks guys, more trying to show that a 14 can hit just fine, I thought previous to changing that it was going to hit like a pink 6lb ball, (obviously knew it wouldn't but kind of had those nightmares of 8-10s and plack 7-10s dancing in my head. BTW, that was my team captain I hung out there and I got him, looks terrible in the vid though. HAHA

    hey not a problem jsut 1 thing to remember if you thorw a 14-15-or 16 lb ball the ball with smash throw the pins and balls thats are 13lbs and lighter will bounce unless u got enouph power and speed on it to make it move right threw the pins but its hard to do cause then a ball wont mvoe in properly itwill morely go streght but gl and hope you do good with a 14lb ball and 15lb ball but remember dont switch between them too often cause u will hurt your arm alot

    Have you tried any of the methods described in other posts to remove the oil that has accumulated in your ball? That should be the first step before saying that you need a new ball.

    People like to relate to bowling as a very nonphysical and easy sport when it's not. Try to get into a gym or something along the lines that involves fitness / strength training. Being fit is a huge advantage for bowling and being able to stay in 110% mode gets very tiring after a while. Tournaments that involve multiple shifts and games wear you out after a while. Practice more and develop some work outs to help you get stronger and more "relaxed" when bowling. Power is a plus in the sport, but consistency is the key. Don't think that having a lot of rotation will make you a better bowler. It will just at times help with pin carry, but will result in more nasty looking splits. Also, being versatile with the game helps a lot and that also comes into play with fitness and strength. Find a coach nearby as well and seek some advice. It's always a wonderful thing to have when someone is demonstrating to you certain exercises that could further improve your game.

    in my opinion that is just too many games... you should never exceed 10 games in a single practice session. anything more than that and you could hurt yourself, and bowling 40 games in 1 day is simply un-heard of. so i dont know whats going on there. the strength will come the more you bowl, just be patient, im 16 too and i throw the same weight. i had to bowl 26 games in a tournament before so i know the "noodle feeling" that your talking about, are you in any leagues? do you have a bowling coach? have you competed in any major tournaments/events? and do you have any video's of your bowling?

    Ha ha. I have bowled 40 games a day or more many times. I know, I'm a bit twisted. Practice is never less than 10 games. I usually practice by myself between coaching appointments and can get all 10 games in in under an hour. I'm 43, 6' tall and 210lbs with a physical day job.

    Another exercise: fill a bucket with rice or sand. The rice is cleaner. Put your hand in there and move your hand around and clench your fist too. I read about this as a kid. Pitchers did it to improve wrist and forearm strength to improve their curve balls.
